Marseillette is a 15-minute drive from “La Cité”, the beautiful medieval city of Carcassonne, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and 25 minutes from the city of Narbonne. For lovers of ‘les plus beaux villages de la France’, Lagrasse and Minerve are highly recommended.
Marseillette is criss-crossed by the river ‘Aude’, where one can paddle or kayak in different places. Within walking distance you can enjoy the view of the boats passing by on the Canal de midi, also recognised as a world heritage site. In the centre of the village you will find the café ‘La Terrasse’ where you can have a meal at democratic prices.
The village is surrounded by numerous vineyards and lies on the border of the Corbières and Minervois wine regions. In the immediate environment there are numerous wineries where the welcoming winegrowers will be happy to welcome you for a visit, a word of explanation or a degustation.
Less than 10 minutes away is Trèbes with two large supermarkets for everyday shopping. In Trèbes, enjoy the pleasant terraces on the pleasure port of the “Canal du midi” and treat yourself to delicious tapas and local wines from the tapas and wine bar “Les Vignes de Bacchus”.
In the département of the Aude and in the immediate neighbourhood there are many markets that offer you the chance to experience the French way of life. The markets usually start around 09:00 and end shortly after noon (l’heure de l’apéro). Local craftsmen offer their ‘Produit du terroir’ at the markets.
